Dior wishes to save the heart of Paris. The company has partnered with the Louvre Museum to finance the restoration of the Jardin des Tuileries, one of the largest and oldest public parks in Paris.
The French luxury house has teamed up with the museum for a five-year project during which, in addition to restoring the garden between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde, other restorations will also take place.
The French fashion house launched this initiative with the aim of contributing to the preservation of the environment as well as the fight against climate change. “Each of us can be an agent of change for the ecosystems of tomorrow,” said Dior.
In fact, this is not the first project launched by the luxury house for this purpose. Last summer, the company replanted nearly two hundred trees, used in one of its fashion shows. In addition, the Tuileries Garden will host its next parade to be held this week.
The Tuileries Garden has been part of Unesco World Heritage since 1991, when it was restored for the first time since its creation around 1564.
In 2005, it was managed by the Louvre Museum which, in addition to its restoration for Dior, launched projects to reduce the consumption of water from its sources or to bring new species of plants to the park with the aim of ” broaden the ecosystem.
This garden is one of the most visited parks in Paris and in addition to hosting more than 35 different varieties of trees and flowers, it also has, within its 30 hectares, renowned sculptures such as Grande Femme II by Alberto Giacometti or Les mains de Louis Bourgeois.
